WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - Duct tape as art? The Marathon County Public Library thinks so.

Third through sixth graders will learn how to make some common household objects out of the venerable tape tonight at the downtown Wausau library. Library assistant Amy Ryan says duct tape isn't just for sticking things to each other anymore. "I think it's now coming into its own as a craft medium."

Tweens will be learning how to make wallets, flowers, cell phone cases and other helpful objects with the tape. Ryan says they're trying to get more kids out doing crafty things. "Things they can use around the house."

The event starts tonight at 6:30. Duct tape will be provided for the students. For more information call the library at 715-261-7220.
